TV Show Olympics: Nominations

In late July, TV Breakroom is going to go mini-poll-crazy for the Olympics! Each daily mini-poll will be considered an event, and gold, silver, and bronze medals will be awarded at the end of each. TV shows will be treated like countries, and will gather medals from more show-based polls (team) as well as character/episode polls (individual). Not every show will be eligible to enter every poll (event), but this is typical of the Olympics as well.

Here are some ideas I had for mini-poll events, and now I need your nominations! Feel free to nominate your own ideas for mini-polls as well, but remember, keep it small and specific! If I get too many nominations for an event, I’ll postpone it for a regular Monday Madness poll. If I get too few, however, it will be dropped as an event.

Make sure you mention what event you’re nominating for in the comments! If you’re nominating for a bunch of events, it will probably best to copy/paste the list of events into your comment, and add your nominations from there.
